    …al inspiration. The cork wall and a few of my magazine clippings are relatively new to my process, courtesy of my brilliant wife Christine Boylan (@KitMoxie), whose home office is just across the hall from me. (Check out her Workspace post.) What hardware to you use? I’ve recently upgraded to a desktop iMac with a cinema display, but my last iMac was four or five years old. I also have a small MacBook I take with me to set or when I’m going out…

    …s. When I’m stuck, I sometimes like to write with pen on a blank page. I use a pillow to take naps in my car. But mostly, I bullshit on the internet. What (if anything) would you change? If we’re talking about my workspace, I wouldn’t mind trying to go work at an office. But I never will. Not unless someone makes me — like, if someone actually made another one of my movies and I had to be on set. Or if I was desperate for…

  • Workspace: Chris Nee https://johnaugust.com/2011/workspace-chris-nee

    Who are you and what do you write? Despite the name Chris Nee, I am not an Asian man — although I did get a staff writer job on a show because the studio was looking for an Asian male perspective. When they met me, a chick and Irish, I’d already been hired and they couldn’t exactly say anything. I’m currently the Executive Producer, showrunner and head writer of an animated series I created for Disney Junior. The show is called Doc…

Most recently, I wrote a pilot adaptation of Stephen King’s awesome Under the Dome for Dreamworks and Showtime. Where and when do you write? I leave my beautiful house and family every morning to write in a cheap flophouse apartment that I rent nearby. My favorite time to write is from midnight…

  • Workspace: The Wibberleys https://johnaugust.com/2012/workspace-the-wibberleys

    Who are you and what do you write? We are Marianne and Cormac Wibberley (aka., “the Wibberleys” which is how we are now credited). When we first meet people in the business, sometimes they ask if we’re siblings. No, we are a married writing team. We’ve been married for decades and have been writing together almost as long. Our most well known credits are the two National Treasure movies, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (with John August), and…
